Resource Center

Visit us at the Garden Project Foster Park Resource Center, located at 2401 Marcus St., Lansing, MI 48912 (the corner of Foster and Marcus Streets).

What’s at the Resource Center?

Besides helpful staff and volunteers who can help answer your questions, we offer to registered gardeners:

  • Free seeds (usually limited to 25 packets per year)
  • Free seedlings (transplants); quantities depend on supply
  • Free tool lending of standard garden tools for two weeks at a time
  • Gardening and cooking info: books, magazines, videos, pamphlets, etc.
  • Other resources as available
  • Also, a great opportunity to meet other gardeners, get advice or volunteer

The Resource Center is now closed for the season. Please call (517) 853-7802 to make arrangements for a special appointment. Thank you!

Attention Community Garden Leaders: If you would like to pick up resources (seeds, plant starts, tools, etc) for your community garden as a whole, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with staff to meet you at the Resource Center after it is opened for the spring.
